It’s Sunday, the day before Monday, and I have chosen to spend my time writing this post not only to help guide myself– but to guide other young professionals as well. Actually, I have chosen to start this whole blog for this reason. It can be hard to start a path people around you haven’t traveled. I have little to no guidance or support from elders, teachers or friends. I am attempting to follow a road I have envisioned for myself since college, led only by the pursuit of tasks and positions that satisfy a gut feeling I follow.
It’s important for you to set a unique goal for yourself. It’s also important not to get distracted by those who try to turn you onto a path they prefer you be on. If a supervisor or family member is guiding you down a road that doesn’t help serve your vision, then why are you continuing to walk down it? What is that little voice in your head telling you to do and why aren’t you doing it?
– COMFORT. I believe comfort hinders many from achieving great things in their professional careers.
Great things never come from comfort zones.
It’s also fear of the unknown. Fear of untapped potential, unlimited possibilities and financial insecurities.
Isn’t it always easier to follow the guidance of someone else than to refuse their directions entirely and dive head first into the unknown and unfamiliar– which may result in failures or even temporary chaos?
Yet, outside of comfort zones is where all the magic happens. That’s what life is all about anyway, right?
When is the last time you listened to your gut feeling and actually obeyed it?
